It has moderate alcohol percentage and is matured for more than two weeks to give a mellow and smooth flavor. It has a smooth and clean taste and Danish character on account of the pure culture yeast imported from Denmark.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 19, 2014
Bottle, Nepal edition. It’s a clear, golden beer topped by a dense, finger-thick white head leaving some lacings. Rather buttery aroma, fruity and with some pale malts. Sweetish, buttery and fruity flavor with some pale malts and a decent bitterness. Medium body. Nice carbonation. Lasting finish. Not too pleasant this one, but with some pleasant notes. 141219

Bottle at Great Nepalese Restaurant, Euston, London. Pours a golden colour, with a small white head. Sweet, grassy aroma. Light bodied, average carbonation, light bitterness to finish. This appears to be a UK brewed version from the same people who are (were?) UK Importer.

ElDesmadre (1716) - Mikołów, POLAND - SEP 24, 2014
Bottle. It was not exactly fresh, so I could fathom all those oxidised honey notes but even without them I doubt this one could be any more drinkable. At least the oxidisation combined with pale malts resulted in a smell strongly reminiscent of cheap whisky. Well, that’s at least something original. Additionally, there is some corn, cardboard and rice in here. Sweetish, ’heavyish’ for what it is. I miss the crispness that is the whole point of industrial pale lagers. Sorry, nothing worth checking out.

liinis (1600) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 15, 2014
Golden clear colour, white head. very mainstream lager with no maltiness and with very little hops or anything in general. Washes well down the spicy Nepalese food.
